I have recently started researching this family of Ringers and am hoping someone in this forum might recognize them and be kind enough to save me duplicate research. Bessie was my great grandmother.
Their father was George Washington Ringer. I have not been able to link this man to others named the same in this forum.
Their mother was Joanna Fee, or some variation thereon such as Joan McPhee, Jane Fie, Joanne Fee, etc …
Irving W. “IW”:The oldest child.A Seattle, WA lawyer with possible business connections in San Francisco, CA.His wife was named Irene.Irene was living near the University of Washington in Seattle, WA where I met her once very briefly in the 1980s. I was too young at the time to appreciate it. She outlived Irving and I am reasonably certain a King Co, WA SSDI entry of 1988 is hers. Possible child name of Wilson.Possible first wife or another child named Tess.
Charles:Possible wife or child names of Thelma, Marlene
Fred:Possible relative name of Hurley
Jessie Hazel:Married Ted Jackson of WA.Lived in WA for quite awhile and probably the rest of her days. I met her in the 1970s but was again too young to appreciate it.
Bessie:Not Elizabeth, really just Bessie. b. Bessie Maude Ringer January 10 1895 in Langdon, North Dakota. m. March 17 1919 to Henry “Hank” Bryan Noonan in Tacoma, WA d. November 29 1974 in Tacoma, WA. Used middle name of Mae instead of Maude in her later years. Hank and Bessie had one child, Doris Elizabeth. Bessie had another child prior to meeting Hank named Robert Williamson. Am pretty sure Bessie was the youngest.Am uncertain the birth order of the middle 3 children but am pretty sure there were no more than these 5.
Regards and Thanks for wading though this kinda long posting.
